South Jersey Teen Kevin McGuire Finally Headed to ACM's to meet Taylor Swift
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 04/06/13 9:37 pm | updated: 04/06/13 9:37 pm
Last year, Kevin McGuire, 19, of Somerdale, Camden County, New Jersey, who has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia since he was 13, got the invitation of a lifetime. A grassroots movement to get country music superstar Taylor Swift to attend Kevin's prom turned into Swift asking McGuire to the Academy of Country Music Awards as her date. Unfortunately, due to complications with his cancer, McGuire had to be admitted to the hospital just two day before the awards. Taylor won the Entertainer of the Year award last year and thanked Kevin from the stage. Kevin needed a bone marrow transplant, which he received from his 11-year-old younger brother who was a match. This year, McGuire is doing amazingly better. He is back to work and planning on heading to college in the fall. The Academy is flying the whole family out the Las Vegas for the ACM awards ceremony on Sunday night. They plan to meet up with Taylor Swift while they are there.
